Creamy Bruschetta

Who doesn't love bruschetta? I would (and have) eat it as a snack turned to meal if I could! This is a quick and easy way to make the basic bruschetta make your friends go.. hmm what is that! I made this amount for 6 adults (one medium to large piece of bread each).


What you need:

  • 2 roma tomatoes, remove seeds and then dice
  • 1/2 small onion, finely diced
  • 3-4 leaves of fresh basil, torn (cutting can bruise the leaf)
  • 1-2 tbsp. of ricotta cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (you can cut back on this)

TIP: If your onions have a tart, or sharp taste, soak them a little bit of white vinegar before adding them in the bruschetta mix (don't forget to drain the vinegar before adding it in!)

The "How to":

  1. Mix the tomatoes, onions, basil, salt, pepper, ricotta cheese and lemon juice
  2. Really it's a one step process :)
The foundational bread:

What you need:

  • loaf of french bread, sliced into 1/2 inch thick pieces
  • buttered with garlic powdered sprinkled

The "How-to":

  1. Pre-heat over to 350 and place the bread on a baking dish
  2. Bake until golden brown
  3. Let cool and top with bruschetta mix
